Response to Cronus Protagonist (Original post)

1. I agree.

 

The media doesn't help, often exaggerating or misstating the weaponry involved.

One anchor called the Newtown rifle a "Bushwhacker", others refer to three weapons as "an arsenal", they generally make things sound more scary than necessary, to no productive end.

Given the choice between a world without guns and a world without violent gun users, I would chose to live in the latter.

If guns were removed from the world, we'd still have the murderers and freaks.
